DBGB NYC Ratings and Reviews

The beer list is amazing and we had the best waiter. I am really sorry I didn't catch his name but he made the experience for us!
The frenchie burger and the sprouts were delicious! Really good. The DBGB hotdog was disappointing compared to the others.
Go for the beer list!

We were here for Valentine's Day. We were seated at a lousy table right away. All others were seated in bankettes and booths. So we were not happy but remained where we were. Our waiter took a drink order that we had to ask twice for. The menu was prix fix but the veal would be $15 extra per person. All that being said the food was excellent, the wine and beer menu impressive and the service improved over time. Would love to go back when it's not a packed and busy night to this sophisticated East Village spot.

I'm a fan of all the DB restaurants. This was just as spectacular as the others but more casual, even on Valentine day. The cocktails looked interesting and the one I tried was spectacular (white manhattan with a house amaro). Dishes were beautifully prepared; menu/style similar to Bar Boulud and DBbistro. The staff were super friendly and relaxed—maybe even more so than the other DB spots.

We went for dinner and felt in the mood for burgers. Big, juicy and delicious. GF bun for me, which was the best I've had in NYC. Even the fries are GF--not cooked in the same oil as anything else. Very interesting cocktails too. I'm going back.

We went for Restaurant Week and overall the food was wonderful and the service was fair plus.
I was early for our reservation and had a glass of wine at the bar. Padraig is wonderful-friendly and professional.
My husband said the steak tartare is one of the best he has had in the city. The duck rillettes appetizer was perfectly seasoned but I thought the marmalade had a bitter aftertaste. We ordered the petite plateau raw platter (not on the Restaurant Week menu) but this was the most disappointing because the shellfish was not shucked well with tiny pieces of shell broken off into the meat of the clams and oysters or the meat was not properly separated from the shell; the menu lists tuna tartare which was missing and instead there was a small dish of plain shelled crab (I'm guessing this was the crab salad). My Long Island Crescent duck had a supplemental charge but it was well worth it. I would order it again. My husband had the DBGB dog and Beaujolais sausage and he loved everything, including the lentils.
The pear and chestnut sundae seemed to be missing the dacquoise and was a giant blob of whipped cream. It was not a good presentation since it was just looked like white whipped cream in a bowl. But, when you scooped underneath all the whipped cream, the chestnut ice cream and pear sorbet were delicious.
The server was very friendly and great at taking our order but off with service, especially with water replenishment. She was walking around a lot and not paying attention to the smaller details (refilling water glass, folding napkin when person leaves the table, clearing empty plates promptly, cleaning off the table surface after the plates were cleared, etc.) that takes a restaurant to the next level. The manager folded my husband's napkin after she stopped at the table but neglected to do it.
We will be back to try the baked Alaska - we decided it was too much for just the two of us so will probably come with a couple more people to try it.

Fantastic!!! The food was delicious and the service was impeccable. I had linguine carbonara, calamari appetizer, and sticky toffee pudding. My date had steak, duck confit, and the sticky pudding. Everything was simply mouth watering. Our waiter was attentive and all of the staff was friendly and on top of things.
Fantastic meal and for restaurant week you can't beat it.

The sausages were delicious! I got the Vermont and the Beaujolais - both were juicy and flavorful. The calamari was also very tasty - had a nice crispness. And the butternut squash soup was very velvety. Tasted the steak and it was cooked very well. And the carbonara was delightful - rich and creamy. Our server was a bit curt but ambiance was nice. Overall a positive experience!

Service was really bad. We had to ask our waiter (and runners, when the waiter could not be found) for simple things multiple times. They didn't bring a bowl for my friend's mussel shells. They brought her ketchup but not the mayo I asked for. It took 25 minutes to get a second cocktail. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We went for restaurant week and ordered from the RW menu. The food was tasty and the service was mostly good except towards the end, they seemed quite in a hurry to get us out. We weren't planning on ordering anything else or hanging around for ages so didn't really mind too much when they gave us the bill without asking. But we were just putting our cutlery down after finishing our dessert and they were literally already grabbing our plates from under us. It wasn't a huge deal but I prefer not to feel rushed when eating, even if I am finishing up my plate.

Haven't been to DBGB's in years. Still very relevant. The food was well prepared and executed. Service was friendly and efficient. Cocktails, spirits, beer and wine all on point. So often power restaurant groups are food/wine/cocktail centric but overlook the beer program. Not the case at BDGB's. Thank you, Ian. We'll be back.

What a great bistro! Everything we had was perfection, from the duck rillettes to the cremant. My wife had the Hake, which was baked to perfection. Especially enjoyed checking out the copper donated by other chefs. If we lived in the area this would definitely be a regular hang out for us, as it is, we'd make the effort to return next time we're in the city. The service was attentive and friendly without being overbearing, and the staff were able to answer our questions knowledgeably.

Came here with a group of 10 for a birthday celebration. Staff was pleasant and friendly, and were patient with us as our group assembled. Food, while not overwhelming, was tasty and well-prepared. Service was good, and our large table was handled well. Good place for a noisy celebration or just for a solid steak frites.

My husband, who has a "cast iron stomach," never any problems, developed severe food poisoning after eating a black truffle pasta at this restaurant. Other diners in the party were fine, but did not have the same dish. We would not recommend the restaurant, no matter how good the food, because it presents a level of risk that is not worth it for the clients.

My friend and I enjoyed the Big Bowery Brunch. Definitely a lot of food to share between 2 people; we both left the restaurant feeling beyond satisfied. The service was very attentive as well, which I appreciated. Overall this was an excellent experience, and I'll be sure to go back.
